WHY SHOULD THE PRODUCTION OF COSMETIC PRODUCTS BE MONITORED?
Cosmetic products that enter the market must be safe for consumers. In order to ensure a high level of health protection for users, a cosmetic product should be manufactured in accordance with the requirements of Good Manufacturing Practice and meet the relevant legal requirements. One of them is the need to perform microbiological tests resulting from Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of November 30, 2009, which has been in force since July 11, 2013. According to this Regulation, cosmetic products should be tested in reliable and reproducible way, which ensures that analyzes are carried out in accredited laboratories.
The tests of microbiological purity of cosmetic products are carried out, among others, by: in order to control the manufacturing conditions and check the quality of the finished product. The assumption of the research is to detect microorganisms in the product, including those that may be potentially pathogenic to consumers. The scope of the tests includes quantitative analyzes for the total number of mesophilic aerobic bacteria and the total number of yeasts and molds as well as qualitative analyzes for the presence of specific, undesirable microorganisms in cosmetic products, i.e. Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans and Escherichia coli.
Testing the microbiological purity is important due to the fact that the vast majority of preparations used for care are susceptible to microbiological contamination. The source of infections, apart from improper production hygiene, are primarily raw materials. Cosmetics containing raw materials such as water or raw materials of natural origin are the most vulnerable to microbial contamination.
The main goal of producers of cosmetic products should be to produce high-quality products that are safe for consumers.
Production based on a high standard of hygiene and appropriate quality control of raw materials and finished products can protect the manufacturer from releasing products of inadequate quality on the market, which may result in marketing and financial losses.
We offer a comprehensive package of microbiological tests of cosmetic products at every stage of production.
